Dear Peter, Thank you for your reply. I think there are two issues here which you overlook. The first of these is that discrimination is only effective in the hands of the powerful. It is Israel that is discriminating against the Palestinians, not the other way around. To condemn a man for his rhetoric, as you tear down his home, steal his land, and then shoot his women and children, is despicable. Anyone who thinks these are right actions puts ethnicity above all other considerations. Is that democratic? No. The second of these issues is one of cause and effect. Israel?s Occupation gave birth to both Hezbollah and Hamas. It is not the other way around. To justify the Occupation on the grounds of the resistance to it is simply disingenuous. It?s like the Nazis justifying their continued occupation of France because the Marquis are shooting back. If you truly wish to lower the rhetoric coming from Hezbollah and Hamas then take away the cause, withdraw. But that is not on the agenda is it? The fruits of Occupation are far too sweet for that. Instead Israel carries out targeted executions on just about any form of Palestinian leadership. Why? To remove the resistance to the takeover of all the lands of Judea and Samaria. So Peter, which is the greater evil, Israel?s Occupation or Palestinian rhetoric? Regards.
